9:30 pm
listen, discover the ultimate live. subscribe to documentary on youtube., in one of his last acts as u.s. secretary of state mike pump a.o. today made history as he became the 1st secretary of state to visit and israeli settlement. land palestinians say it was stolen from the symbolism was strong, but was there more in 2 months from peo and his boss, president, trump, will both belong to america's political past. and yet what we witnessed today could have been a rehearsal, but for who a future presidential candidate named mike pompei. oh, or did we just see a repeat performance by a candidate named donald trump?
9:31 pm
i'm bringing off in berlin. this is the day for the trumpet that america stands with this road like never before. thanks to president drum and was recognized through the world cup and sympathy here. don't tell that even if pump elites from mitch mcconnell, lindsey graham come here, this land will remain palestinian. these are israel, that we are in spain, looking up at this is the land of israel, the date of israel. we're told that the new what was there to push the button. look for a bit of all this to the face, but also coming up at last month 8000 african migrants arrived on the shores of spain's canary islands. they had made it to europe, but not the europe. many had dreamed of it,
9:32 pm
i know has got to get it. i'm disappointed with spain and with europe, and this is shameful. and a lot of philip's issues and representatives have come here recently, but we have no clue what the government's strategy is to deal with the migration crisis on the canary islands. and to our viewers on p.b.s. in the united states, into all of you around the world. welcome. we begin the day with the u.s. secretary of state's in the middle east on a mission, but whose mission today might pump aoe did what? none of his predecessors dared or even wanted to do. he stepped foot on to an israeli settlement land the international community considers illegally occupied land, palestinians say belongs to them. like pump ayos boss, president trump. today's visit was provocative and in your face moment for palestinians. donald trump began his presidency by swearing allegiance to america's
9:33 pm
pro. israel policy were precisely the policy of israeli prime minister, benjamin netanyahu. palestinians have never been included in any trump negotiations or decisions regarding the middle east. but donald trump leaves office in january, and that leaves little time for more than last minute legacy building. if that was indeed the purpose of pompei a visit, could today's embrace of israel be part of donald trump's planned 2024 political resurrection? or could today have been a casting call for a future u.s. presidential candidate named mike pump a. it's a 1st for israeli american relations. and a parting gift from america's outgoing top diplomat. mike pump a was a visit to the golan heights, makes him the 1st u.s. secretary of state to visit the disputed territory. since israel sees the region in 1967,
9:34 pm
the united nations may have rejected the annexation. but for pump a 0 and the trump administration. this is israeli land. you keep, you can't stand here and stare out at what's across the border. and tonight i the central thing, the president trump recognized that previous presidents had refused to do. this is a part of israel, a central part of israel, in another, unprecedented move pump a 0. made a stop to an israeli settlement in the west bank angering some palestinians who see legitimizes what they view as illegal israeli settlements. the secretary of state had no scheduled meetings with palestinian leaders. some have called the trip a victory lap of sorts, a chance for the trumpet, ministration to highlight what it sees as its diplomatic success in the region. including taking steps to legitimize israeli settlements. there for a long time, the state department took the wrong view of settlements. it took
9:35 pm
a view that didn't recognize the history of the special place. and instead, now today the united states department of state stand strongly to the recognition that settlements can be done in a way that are lawful and appropriate and proper a stance that puts the u.s. at odds with many international bodies. and that could prove to be a stumbling block for incoming president elect joe biden. and for more, i'm joined tonight by a respected voice in the geopolitics of the middle east trip parsis, an award winning author who has written several books on u.s. foreign policy in the region. he's also executive vice president, the quincy institute's for responsible state for it. truly, it's good to have you back on the date. let's look at what mr. pompei, you did today. a visit to the occupied golan heights, and then a visit to an israeli settlement in the occupied west bank. what was pompei trying to do today? well, we can only speculate,
9:36 pm
and i think your reporting has all already suggested that this could very much be part of desire by on payola to boost his own bid for 2024 and maybe to be able to boost trump's 2nd bid. all of those things are valid speculations in my view, but we should not be forgetting though, is that regardless of their intent, this is going to have real and frankly devastating consequences for the region as well as for u.s. security because these are measures that is locking in the united states, in a posture in the middle east, that makes it increasingly stuck and increasingly complicit in the illegal activities of some of its allies. and this is alternately bad for the region and ultimately about for the united states as well. regardless of the intent or the political motivation of it, which is take a listen to what the secretary of state said today about iran. indeed, the commitment we've made, the commitment we've made to the jewish state will continue. it was,
9:37 pm
i'm confident after our conversation this morning, we talked about how we can protect americans and israelis in the region from the regime in tehran. you talked about this, they were maimed. we should not take for granted. they remain the foremost they sponsor of terrorism in all the world. and israel's provided us standing support to our pressure campaign, which we have no intention of relaxing. so trying to help us pump a message square with president elect joe biden's intention to try to revive the iran nuclear deal. well, tom pay was doing absolutely everything he can to make sure that by then his options are as limited as possible and that it does not lead to him being able to return to the way or in other any other measure. and i think this is really critical, this is also what he is trying to do when it comes to moving the embassy to jerusalem. recognizing these settlements,
9:38 pm
making these visits because they're counting on the idea that biden simply does not have enough political courage to reverse some of these policies. policies that he himself deem to be devastating for u.s. national security, but that he doesn't have what it takes to make sure that there's a push back against that. unfortunately by calculation may be proved true because when we take a look at what's been happening on the u.s. israel front and the treatment of settlements, there has been a gradual acceptance of illegal settlements at something that the u.s. at 1st objected to later on. viewed as an obstacle to peace later on became more neutral towards to what we have right now. a complete embrace of illegal settlements and violation of international law. and i think in some ways from pos and trump in the stray. she may have gone too far to me, have pushed it so far, that biden may have no choice to, but really push back, even though he will like you pay a political price for doing so. what would you think it's possible that joe biden could stay the course when it comes to accept the israeli settlements,
9:39 pm
but really trying to do a 180 with the policy on the iran nuclear deal and try to revive that deal. could. i mean, could he have both of these things happening at the same time? he could end up like you what's going to happen because the political cost of reversing the policies on israel are going to be hired and trying to go back into the nuclear deal. i mean, we should not forget that democratic platform explicitly says that a democratic president should be going back into the nuclear deal and beyond that also negotiate further having additionally, goshi actions with iraq. there is no such language in terms of settlements, for instance. so i think the political price will be lower on the iranian front. but i think what's really important to keep in mind here is that democratic presidents, all too often have ended up accepting the limitations and the framework that previous republican presidents have imposed on them. we saw that as well, many came to the obama administration that would
9:40 pm
a lot of the legacies of the bush administration. and the question is, is there enough political will to really actually have to do that. and biden, define his framework himself and define whatever limitations he has himself, instead of letting him be defined by a president, trump, or secretary from fail definition in defining pump a. you attempted to expand the definition of anti-semitism today. take a listen to what he said. today, i want to make one announcement with respect to a decision by the state department that we will regard the global and he has real b.d.s. campaign is anti sematic. another some simple to you, mr. prime minister. since it seems like a statement of fact, but i want, you know, that we will immediately take steps to identify organizations that engage in hateful b.d.s. . gondor can withdraw our u.s. government support. now today he's also talking about people who want to boycott
9:41 pm
israel. not necessarily because they're inside semites, but he's saying he wants to consider them as incisive mites. is that going to have any legal leg to stand on in the united states? it's likely going to be challenged by a.c.l.u. and a lot of other we're going to zation this because this is a freedom of speech issue. i mean, on the one hand pump you know, is imposing crippling sanctions on iran. they have been devastating for ordinary people, limited their access to medicine in the midst of a pandemic. and on the other hand, he's trying to say that even if individuals on their own voluntary basis decide that they don't want to buy oranges from israel and that suddenly because it turns them into anti-semite. so there's going to be massive legal challenges to this. i'm confident what i think more than anything this shows is that you are now an administration that is just an ingredient to whatever bibi netanyahu is telling them that they should be doing. because this is just a wish list of everything bibi netanyahu has ever wanted. and i think there's very
9:42 pm
few people anywhere. the truly believe that netanyahu is objective, has been peace. and if the united states then is aligning itself or whatever netanyahu wants, and it's not wanting peace. well, that creates a major problem for the united states and the region. it's already been bad enough as it is, but it's going to get even worse going forward. i suspect, well, could this be a tramp that the pump a or the trump administration is laying for democrats that are about to take power? because they can say then if you're boycotting israel the, you're an anti-semite and that's going to play well with evangelical christians, for example, in the united states. absolutely, i mean, part of the plan here is very much to try to make sure that republicans are seen as the pro israel party in the united states. and netanyahu has long given up on the idea that his close allies in the united states would be damn merican, jewish community. the american jewish community overwhelmingly votes for democrats
9:43 pm
. they are overwhelmingly opposed to dollar trump. they're overwhelmingly in support of the iran nuclear deal, and they're very, very skeptical if not opposed to settlements. so those are not his allies. his allies are m.n. jellicoe christians who actually have a theological affinity with israel. one that is somewhat strange at the end of the day because they envision that israel needs to get strong in order for christ to return. but at that moment, anyone who is not a christian or does not converting to christianity will be killed. but that is actually a very strong motivating factor for people like him feel who is embedded jellicoe, and has been talking about these things quite a lot, at least prior to becoming secretary of state. so let me just ask you more time. what do you think then, reeves so happening today was this early campaigning by pump a 0 for president in 2024 or was he doing campaign work for trump's flight to return to the white house in 2024? i suspect this has more to do with himself than with trump. i think this
9:44 pm
has very much to do with the fact that he wants to be the contender for the republican nomination and 2024. he has always had an eye on it, and his main competitors are going to be people like nikki haley and others who also have a tendency of aligning themselves with netanyahu. so i think this is an effort by him to give himself a leg up to be that he doth competition that devastation for us master security. and the region as a whole is not even a 2nd concern. i don't think it's a concern at all. unfortunately, try to parse executive vice president the quincy institute for responsible state craft for his always good talking with you. we appreciate your insights. thank you . well this week the palestinian authority said it will resume its security cooperation with israel and that cooperation ended 6 months ago. in protest against israel's plans to annex large parts of the west bank palestinians
9:45 pm
say settlements would undermine any possibility of establishing a palestinian state. israel claims historical and religious rights to the west bank as the ancestral land of the jewish people. some say the palestinian decision to resume security cooperation with israel is in part a response to joe biden's election victory in the u.s. . all right, let me pull in now a crumb baker. he is a palestinian analyst based here in berlin. he is a former communications advisor to the palestinian minister for jerusalem affairs arguments good to see you again. pump a met with no palestinians today. and he said israel has shown how israeli settlements can be done. legally, your take i but it's nice to speak with you again, but stop acting like a secretary of state populace acting like
9:46 pm
a pompous jackass who staggered to fix 3 right wing of the republican party. he's breaking every norm rule. every regulation of international law and meeting with if they go into it is really sort of what this man is. all of that he's taken seriously is that he's dangerous, but his thoughts are so british are so off the cuff and wrong that no one in the mainstream will accept it. let me ask you about what the palestinians are thinking, the decision to revive cooperation with the israelis, is that because they hampshire hoops in president joe biden's middle east policies and his israel policy. i mean, we have, we have to look at this from 2 things. 1st of all the palestinian authority of mahmoud abbas is a spent force does not have any religion in the city more, not among the palestinian people. the only power to have has to somehow pay
9:47 pm
salaries to the people the fastest joe biden was elected president of the united states to for reserves deal 5 the progressive wing of the party. and i'd like to give a shout out to stacy abrams what she did in georgia. and the interesting thing is that for the 1st time, these progressives are not afraid to work for us national interest. and that means challenging the israel, the right to israel to occupy palestine. and they have proven that this is not only a left electoral suicide that they have won it by being able to say we are no longer supporting the israeli occupation. we can send forth as they can to get elected. or fortunately, the palestinian authority is as i suspect, force of the p.l.o. or some joint think among the palestinian people. and that's why i think it needs to move towards a completely against the security cooperation. i find it useless. jimmy graham,
9:48 pm
who is joe biden, did you should be told when he wants to talk with the palestinians. first of all, i mean what joe biden can do, there's quite a few things that joe biden could make very easy, very great changes, which he can do, which will strive towards how we say to correcting all of the wrongs committed by the trumpet, registration of the forest, 101st version. well, of course he's going to call the past because he is there, but this doesn't mean that this is going to happen. i'm talking about the 1st 100 days. of course, you should call the hold off, but he needs to immediately, if he can, re, not in the hobbit to utter what you would have to be. you have f.e.m.a. to support. well kyra, look for the united states to come back to that. to reopen the p.l.o. embassy, see it's not a palestinian authority of the sea. it's the p.l.o. embassy in washington. to ask for the everything at the heart of settlements to re
9:49 pm
state that these are illegal under international law to declare that this is that it's illegal. these are simple things, these are simple words that he could pick which put it to us national security interest and longstanding u.s. promise. well, we will see in about 2 months if that is indeed undertaken. baker, joining us tonight here in berlin are going, is good talking with. we appreciate your time and your insights tonight. thank you . let's talk of you to iraq. thank you. more than 8000, migrants arrived on spain's canary islands by boat from africa last month hoping to reach europe. human rights groups say they're being held in dire conditions, while local officials admit to being simply overwhelmed. the journey across choppy waters to the spanish islands is treacherous. w.'s john philip schultz has been to
9:50 pm
gruhn canara to see what's waiting for the migrants. from here, journalists can go no farther. some 2000 african migrants are being housed in this camp in the part of 5 times as many as was expected to aid groups have spoken of squalid conditions, but it's impossible for the w. news to find out. seamus on time now works for the island's refugee council. his colleagues have been inside the camp, but another minute everyone sleeps on the floor, some intensity and some knowledge in the open. we've been criticizing this from day one, but we didn't think it would get this bad news of the 2300 people in the camp. and then numbers that are growing every day in the only 2000 migrants arrived in the canary islands. last weekend alone, the crossing is dangerous,
9:51 pm
but the coronavirus pandemic has cut off about migration routes. the government has started to housing new arrivals and hotels near the camp. human rights activists say they are not getting a fair shot at the asylum system. these migrants from san diego fia that they will soon be deported. so long will it be for the fact that throughout the world by journalists are not welcome here eva g w . news. this told to leave in that conversation may not know is angry at the spanish government, but also shame for a lot of politicians and representatives have come here recently. but we have no clue what the government's strategy is to deal with the migration crisis on the canary islands. and spain's government refuses to relocate the migrants to the mainland. critics say
9:52 pm
this has turned the island into a prison. for months, the trend of increasing migration numbers has been visible here on the canary islands. never the less everyone involved seems about went by the current situation, valuable preparation time has been lost. instead, the island's government, the central government and the european union, starting to shift responsibility for the situation to one another. the spanish government has now started to procure for of accommodation for the migrants. many fear that this housing will fill up before long. well the coronavirus pandemic has claimed 1500000 lives around the world. millions more are mourning the loss that so many were unprepared for one tattoo artist in argentina, he is dealing with the grief of losing his father, and he's doing it by sharing his are. these are not easy times for tattoo artist

a manner we both experienced evil and death. it was hard. i couldn't see my sister to say goodbye. we couldn't hold a wake. it's so sad. to know, just days after one of the world's longest quarantine periods, argentina is seeing a rapid rise in deaths. more and more people are succumbing to the virus. hospitals can barely cope with the number of patients. we let it grow. in many provinces, intensive care beds have hit capacity in rosario, cordoba and other regions. and there's no sign of improvement. with argentina's government appears at a loss over how to respond a month long lockdown failed to contain the virus and dealt a crippling blow to the ailing economy. in the tattoo studio, carlos centaury on is next in line. he too lost his 80 year old father to the

10:00 pm
tonight, here in europe, lots of talking but no solutions. european union leaders, 450000000000 euros in funding to help member states through the coronavirus, hungary blocking the recovery plan disagreeing that funds should be conditional on respecting the rule of law. also coming up the u.s. secretary of state courting controversy as the 1st american diplomat to visit the occupied golan heights and mixed by israel in 1000 mark being a major shift in u.s. foreign policy.
10:01 pm
it's good to have you with us. european union leaders have just failed to break a deadlock, which has stalled 750000000000 euros in emergency funding to help people ride out the coronavirus crisis. a diplomatic route has blocked the release of the relief money and a wider budget covering the next 7 years. poland and hungary are objecting to a rule of law mechanism, which allows the e.u. to withhold funds from member states which violate the norms of democracy. something both of these countries have been accused. well, after these talks, german chancellor angela merkel was asked whether she would go as far as threatening to withdraw all hungary and poland's voting rights. it's i must say that effect is not something that i would use in this context. we have every hope
10:02 pm
to find a way forward, as is absolutely clear to all that this is an important issue. and we will try to bring this forward. it's not an easy problem. i'm conscious that it's a serious problem that we have to solve. so i don't want to speculate as you pointed out, are this german chancellor merkel speak you there? let's cross over now to our correspondent barbara visa's. she's covering the summit for us from brussels. good evening to you, barbara. we understand the mood during this virtual summit must have been very tense. why was it not possible to convince hungary and poland to agree to let the money be released? diplomatic spoken, you would say intense frustration, particularly among the southern european countries who are really waiting for the money from the corona fund. why did it not work out? because poland and hungary really have dug themselves into a hole,
10:03 pm
and they don't show any signs of climbing out. on the other hand, european leaders, for instance, the dutch prime minister margaret, show no signs of relented because he more or less said before the meeting, i'm not going to be blackmailed. the rule of law mechanism stays full stop. so the 2 sides look at each other, particularly we also have experienced again, that zoom conferences don't lend themselves to a full out draw. so this whole discussion was broken off after about 30 minutes and they will try sort of in 4 eyes in the next days until they meet again in december to find a solution to this is that's right, it's a good lesson. nothing is better than face to face negotiations. we know that the german chancellor angela merkel, she says tonight, she's not going to speculate about how this impasse can be resolved. missed you, barbara, janet, be solved. it can be solved, of course. i mean, every crisis,
10:04 pm
somehow, even a hostage crisis like this in the european union, when the whole budget has been sort of taken. even this crisis can be solved the easy, the normal way would be european leaders. say they would add the declaration to the rule of law making isn't that says simply we've promised that every country here will be treated equally. so poland and hungary are not singled out. but every country, if they sort of london, the democratic rules or sort of deconstruct them, will be admonished and in the end will be punished if that doesn't help. and if that doesn't help to get find climbdown for poland and hungary, then there's the so-called nuclear option that the remaining $2425.00 countries would raise the money on the financial markets via intergovernmental contract. it's
10:05 pm
a bit complicated, legally, and technically, but it is doable. it is doable. but we know in the european union, we really see the nuclear option. where do things go from here and keep us out of the mushroom cloud? they really have to resolve this. i mean, they do have to do something and retreating is not an option either for european countries because they have also docked themselves in on this one of lawmaking is and they have sort of looked on what happened in hungary and lately in poland for years and they haven't interfered and now the patients sort of run out. so it really, resolution needs to be found. there will be talks over the next days and weeks till mid december. and the problem here is that it's only spain in particular, urgently waiting for the billions from the corona fund. they really need the money to revitalize and kick start the economies. and something that will happen is that
10:06 pm
the economic, that the emotional and the political fallout from this will not be forgotten. hungary and poland. that's a do not come back soon. asking anybody for a favor here. all right, you heard it 1st here. barbara believes long story for us in brussels. barbara, thank you. germany's disease control institute is warning that the national rate of coronavirus infections remains too high more than 22000, new cases recorded in the last 24 hours. but there are signs that the latest restrictions are working as numbers begin to plateau. but the head of the rubber caulk institute says the situation is still very serious. because of the overall case numbers are much too high. the number of civic cases and the number of patients in intensive care are also on the rise. it's the number of deaths is also still very high. and as we know,
10:07 pm
this is said lank in severe cases and death. so it was to be mine. the u.s. death toll in the pandemic has now topped a quarter of a 1000000 that is the highest in the world. many state governors and mayors are imposing stricter measures before next week's thanksgiving holiday, but with inflation soaring to new highs. there's little relief for those hard pressed health care work. another day on the front line. doctors and nurses are doing all they can to help the growing number of covert 1000 patients. but the death toll keeps rising. 250000 americans lost to the pandemic. that exceeds predictions by the country's top and experts say hundreds of thousands more could die in the coming months. health care workers are pleading with people to take the virus seriously. where i understand that we have so much on our plate as nurses, there's not enough. we have been one of those, this is
10:08 pm
a place for people to go where mask and i hope i don't see you as the pandemic keep sweeping, the u.s. the midwest has become the latest hot spot. the dakotas and neighboring states have some of the highest per capita death tolls, but every state in the contiguous us is seeing rising numbers. some are blaming the lack of a national strategy. cities and states have their own response plans in new york city's schools closed again on wednesday, just 8 weeks after reopening, california is considering a curfew. other places have introduced mass mandates. president elect joe biden has called for a strong federal response, and he has warned even more people could die if president trump continues to refuse to share. crucial information with the incoming administration. on wednesday biden
10:09 pm
held a virtual meeting with frontline work, as he told them about chronic shortages. they still suffer under keep telling me to look in the camera. what i missed out is how i have held that he had the guy in patients who are crying out for their family that they can't see. you know, we nurse this, we know that we are b.c. immense, dark and sundry in the coming weeks. and we will be there, but we need to act now. i'm sorry i'm so emotional. it's just you got me emotional. in many places the mold, filling up again in texas prison isn't helping move the deceased to refrigerated trucks. a quarter of a 1000000 dead is a bleak milestone and even with hopes of, a vaccine on the horizon, the disarray and hurt is far from over. u.s., secretary of state mike pompei, i was in the middle east on a trip that is breaking with an stablished us foreign policy 1st. he visited
10:10 pm
a jewish settlement in the occupied west bank. an occupation still not recognized by much of the international community. later in the day, he stopped in the israeli help go on heights, annexed by israel from syria in 1967, syria condemned today's visit as provocative. it's a 1st for israeli american relations. and a parting gift from america's outgoing top diplomat, mike pump a was a visit to the golan heights, makes him the 1st u.s. secretary of state to visit the disputed territory. since israel sees the region in 1967, the united nations may have rejected the annexation. but for pump a 0 and the trump administration, this is israeli land. you keep, you can't stand here and they're out at what's across the border and deny the central thing the president rep recognized that previous presidents had refused to
10:11 pm
do. this is a part of israel, a central part of israel, in another, unprecedented move pump a 0. made a stop to an israeli settlement in the west bank angering some palestinians who see legitimizes what they view as illegal israeli settlements. the secretary of state had no scheduled meetings with palestinian leaders. some have called the trip a victory lap of sorts, a chance for the trumpet, ministration to highlight what it sees as its diplomatic success in the region. including taking steps to legitimize israeli settlements. there for a long time, the state department took the wrong view of settlements. it took a view that didn't recognize the history of the special place. and instead, now today the united states department of state stand strongly to the recognition that settlements can be done in a way that are lawful and appropriate and proper a stance that puts the us at odds with many international bodies. and that could prove to be a stumbling block for incoming president elect. joe biden. more than 8000
10:12 pm
